Description: The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program at UMBS (NSF #1659338) offers undergraduate students a rare opportunity to design, conduct, analyze, and present their own mentored research addressing some aspect of the program theme, “Climate Change in the Great Lakes Region”. In our program, students are involved with all phases of their research project, from hypothesis formulation and experimental design to data gathering, analysis, and interpretation, concluding with both written and oral communication of their scientific findings. Our students feel like researchers rather than research assistants. Each student receives extensive hands-on mentoring from a research committee consisting of an established UMBS researcher as the primary mentor and the two program co-directors, Dave Karowe and Steve Bertman (a global change ecologist and an atmospheric chemist) to help provide an interdisciplinary perspective.
